Post-work Friday, me ‘n’ Andrew tired and cranky and trying to get out the door for a two-hour drive to meet friends at a cabin on Odell Lake. We halfway don’t even want to go because we are so tired and so cranky. But we committed and by 7:30 p.m.,. we’re on the road. By 8:30, we’re less cranky. By 9:30 we’re slip-sliding in the snow and then walking into the cabin where our friends have a fire going in the wood stove, the wine open and a board game underway. After getting settled we walk out to the meadow where a brilliant almost full moon and several bright planets are shining down on us.
All tired crankiness forgotten. All petty hurts from the week gone. Healed.
